I've thought the same but I tend to look at the lineup in terms of number of positions divided by salary cap, therefore how much could I spend by position if I split it evenly versus number of players at that position.

Basically it breaks down as:

$36 M on forwards
$18 M on D
$6 M in goal

If our second line is JVR-Grabo-Kulemin, we have about $12.5 on line 2. We could afford $18 M on line 1 if we make sure our bottom 2 lines average $1 M each. Kessel soon probably makes $7.5, leaving $10.5 for the other two. All depends what we decide to do but that's one option. Course there's all kinds of FA every year so it constantly changes.
